Water painting on our Florence terrace… as you do! (Tourist Time)

When the weather is nice and your Florence apartment across from the awe-inspiring Duomo has a terrace, what else does one do but a little water painting. That is painting on the warm ground with sponges of water. Good times, good times!

Over this summer vacation I’m taking trips of another kind. Of a Thursday I’m traveling down memory lane, reminiscing a little about all the traveling we’ve done to various parts of the world as a family!





And just who are you? (Wordless Wednesday)

And away she goes! (OWPC – Heron)

There are two beautiful herons that come visiting of an evening when the tides go out. On the odd occasion there is even sometimes a third heron.

There are moments I wish I could get so much closer to these birds but then I remind myself how lucky these herons are to have this time to themselves without any pesky people about!

Heron is the One Word Photo Challenge this week from Jennifer Nichole Wells.






30-seconds is MUCH longer then you think! (Macro Monday)

In preparation of the summer holidays we treated ourselves to an actual microwave popcorn maker instead of using the paper-bags we usually do.

The instructions did give a time to put it in the microwave but in my wisdom I decided to bump up that time by an additional thirty-seconds. Won’t do THAT again!





Pretty Pink Posy (Friday Flowers)

Showing a young man size doesn’t matter! (Tourist Time)

My then four-almost-five year old son seemed like such a big boy. Then he stands in front of one of the fifty-metre tall Arc de Triomphe pillars and he is immediately engulfed. Even the swords on the sculptures above him were taller than he was!

For something a little different, with the children getting older I’m going to use the Thursday’s over this summer vacation to take a journey down memory lane, reminiscing about the traveling we’ve done to various parts of the world as a family!
